Albion youngster Katie Robinson is on standby for the Lionesses.

The 20-year-old wide player scored the winner for the Seagulls at home to Reading on Sunday.

She is part of the back-up group for two forthcoming England friendlies, including a return to the Amex.

England play the USA at Wembley, then take on the Czech Republic at the Amex on Tuesday, October 11 as they build to the World Cup.

Robinson, who has bounced back from serious injury, was impressive against Reading even before her carefully guided shot gave her side a precious 2-0 elad.

They went on to win 2-1 for their first points of the WSL season.

Albion boss Hope Powell said: “I was delighted for Robbo. She’s a great kid who is really starting to make her mark in the team now.”
